[ coughing ] i have to tell you, i had a really hard time buying that from the last president. i just don't think i can do it from this one. this is the guy whoin creased the federal deficit to $1.35 trillion. that's higher as a share of the economy than any other year than world war ii. he's also the guy who is just recommended we raise the debt ceiling by another $2 trillion. the guy who approved a $787 billion spending orgy that resulted in millions of wasted -- well, at least i think that we didn't need the turtle tunnel in florida. the reptile road safety thing. that's just me. this guy has now decided that things are getting crazy. i'm fixing it. he's now proposing a spending freeze. a spending freeze. spending freeze. wow, it sounds like a good idea on the surface. where have i heard that spending freeze thing before? >> the problem with spending freeze is you use a hatchet when yo
and is far less so now, as there are so many people in the muslim world that are mad at america. very few muslims hate americans for being americans. in terms of airports, the watch word is not a silver bullet. if anything, this gentleman in detroit was a rank amateur. had he been a professional, it would not have the nabobs of job. for americans to somehow think that we have a great system to protect them, i think that is wrong. i think sometimes i wonder why we spend so much attention on the aircraft and system when we have 3000 or 4,000 miles of open sea borders. host: going back to your comment from a moment ago about the u.s. killing al qaeda one of the time, what should we do, does that mean a bigger military presence in places like yemen? guest: we are at the drawing board. we have not progressed since 9/11. we are fighting an enemy that basically does not exist. the american people, for the last four presidents, continued to tell americans that we are fighting an enemy that is motivated by hatred for freedom and our liberties. women in the workplace. liquor after the work day. the

with you. i want to talk about what you do for america and also what america needs to do for all of you. from day one this has been a mission of mine, along with the vice president's i wife, dr. jill biden, my dear, dear friend and blue star mom herself, who has been a tireless advocate in support of our extraordinary national guard and reserve members and their families, jill and i have been working hard on this. one of the first things that we wanted to do was to first listen and learn. so with many of you we had a series of round table discussions -- roundtable discussions, thank you-all with our military spouses. we met with deborah and sandy and other wives of the joint chiefs to get their advice and guidance on how to develop our initiatives. that was incredibly helpful. we also met with the senior enlisted advisors wives to discuss what's working in the ranks and what also can be improved. these conversations gave jill and i just really critical guidance and insight for what would be our subsequent visits to bases and military communities around the country. and as i think back o
. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u
to the united states of america throughout its history. haiti sent troops to fight with the american patriots who were fighting for their innocence against great britain and -- independence against great britain. in savannah, the battle of savannah, many haitians lost their lives which was one of the turning points of the columnists turning the tide against the british army. many valiant haitians died for our independence and actually during history when haitian military had a 12-year war with napoleon's army, haiti defeated the great napoleon's military and therefore france was in need of finances and france at that time controlled the louisiana territory. it was because of haiti's defeat of france and their need for cash that the united states was able to buy the louisiana territory, the same as the louisiana purchase, which therefore opened the west to the united states and louis and clark then went throughout the continent. so if you look at it, haiti has had a tremendous amount to do with our development as a nation and so we now owe a responsibility and i believe to our long-standing fr
, reverend sharpton, have you a majority leader, one of the most powerful people in america, going around using the term "negro dialect?" >> it's a concern, but whether or not it is enough to ask him to step aside given his record and the fact that he was saying why he felt his candidate can win. i might add, joe, we did not bring up trent lot, the republicans did. the republican chairman said we were raising a double standard. we did not use on senator reid what we used on senator lott. we didn't bring up lott. i don't know anyone who would have made that outrageous comparison. >> reverend, did you read what harry reid's reaction to trent lott's comments were? not to get too deep in the weeds here, but it doesn't help back up the point that there really can't be a parallel here. because obviously trent lott made the comments about strom thurmond that led to his demise and harry reid had a reaction to those comments and i'd like if we could put them up on the screen. he basically said he wouldn't do something like that, and that's how you play. in 2000, then senator-obama suggested -- >>
of heated debate but the fast track to health care reform in america has been a major road block. that's our starting point, good morning, on a friday, i'm hill -- bill hemmer, welcome to "america's newsroom". martha: i'm martha maccallum. call it the brown effect, with 41 votes thanks to scott brown from massachusetts, democratic leaders have now conceded, they stay you know what, we do not have the votes to push through health care bills on the table. some democrats say the house should just pass the senate version and send that to the president to sign. here's a speaker of the house with a very different tune, nancy pelosi yesterday. >> we are meeting with our members on every -- in the caucus and different groups of the caucus. we hear how they perceive the best way to go forward, how they prefer to go forward and we will go forward. in its present form without any change, i don't think it's possible to pass the senate bill in the house. i don't see the votes for it at this time. bill: is it dead? bill salmon, fox news, vice president of news and washington morninging editor, good mornin
here, it's not in my backyard type thing, it's i don't want these terrorists here anywhere in america and neither do the majority of the american people and to disdwight this or to say it's a jobs program is ridiculous. >> joe, what do you say to people who say, gitmo, as long as it exists, it's making the lives to become terrorists even longer. ice a bad poster for what america stands for. what's your answer to that? >> my answer to that is that where better than gitmo to put these terrorists? and to bring them to the united states is ridiculous. gitmo, the people there are trained to handle these situations. i talk to a gold star mother who visited gitmo. that plays is a professional, state of the art facility, and they are trained to deal with these terrorists, and that's where they belong. to bring them out to thompson, illinois, or to nips in america and have us learn how to do it, is ridiculous and it's -- go ahead. >> i was just going to say, are you going to go to the hearing today? can the average constituent in the state of illinois make any difference today by showing up at
. they are. s and what's interesting is american company were populated by people not all born in america. certainly the immigration policy in this country needs to be more enlightened in the time to come. >> very good point. now, quloun lo when you look ats are you sometimes surprised -- the actual volume of stocks of trading is not as strong as you would think given the fact that there are probably more opportunities and more issues coming? what's with the american people? do they not understand how ferrets come to trade stocks in america? >> certainly fair to trade stocks in america. the volumes are at a strong level but we expect them to increase in 2010. 2008 was a shock to the system about in 2009, people coming out of the shock. we saw increased strength as the year waxed on. we think the trend line willen in 2010. >> one thing i hear constantly is that wall street doesn't give main street a shake. you and i have been around for a long time. has it ever been more fair to trade nasdaq stocks than it is right now? >> no, it has not. understand our market is transparent, it's visible,
on america. one year later, major garrett has a look back at the president's foreign policy. >> the president's biggest foreign policy hoop came at the end of his first year, sending 30,000 additional troops to afghanistan to combat a tenacious taliban. >> i'm convinced that our security is at stake in afghanistan and pakistan. >> when mr. obama accepted his noble peace prize he surprised some by defending his expanded afghan war as crucial to winning a post 9/11 peace. republicans backed this decision but not what came with it. >> his simultaneous announcement of his desire for an early commencement of withdrawal of american forces sent a very bad signal. >> signals, mr. obama has tried to send new ones as with his speech to the muslim world in cairo. at big summits the president acknowledged what he called u.s. missteps in foreign policy, economics and the environment. >> it is not just the apologies that make a difference, it is the overall weakness and decline in defending american interests. >> the white house and its allies call it practicallal honesty. >> he has shown a sincetivity to
ourselves -- pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again the work of remaking america. >> the mission in afghanistan is undeniably difficult. and successful requires steadfast commitment. and insecures significant cost. >> we all stand shoulder to shoulder in the belief that healthcare reform is necessary and timely. >> american families and small business are still struggling as the white house response continues to fall short. >> bret: we'll reflect back on the biggest stories of 2009 with our all-star panel tonight. and look ahead to the new year. "special report" starts right now. >> happy new year. tonight we'll discuss some of the top headlines of 2009. including in-depth analysis of our top four stories of the year. afghanistan, healthcare reform, the economy, and, of course, president barack obama's first year in office. that is where our special begins. >> i barack obama will solemnly swear -- >> that i will execute the office of the president of the united states faithfully. >> that i will execuexecute -- >> faithfully execute -- execute the office faithfully
makes america such an exceptional country? guest coburn there are so many things. i mean a lot of it does come from, from a christian worldview, a christian founding. part of that is freedom of choice so of course they prosper in america but it was disproportionately christians with a christian worldview founding it in part of-- part of what is interesting about that is i mean christ was really upsetting the customs of his day by using so many women for his parables, by administering to women so often. that was very unusual, so as i said before the first feminist was not gloria steinem. it was jesus christ, and there is that the idea of the freedom of choice, i mean literally choice not killing babies choice, and also the idea that all men are created by god and therefore no man has the right to rule over you accept by your consent, except not perfect consent but that is the idea of a federalist democracy that making this a roula for you by divine right because the king has no genetic authority over you. there is and a son of god or some genetic power to roll over their people.
bill: this is a fox news alert, we have new videotape coming into "america's newsroom" of a passenger jet that crashed early this morning, rescue crews, desperately trying to find any survivors after an ethiopian airlines plane caught fire and crash going the mediterranean sea, 90 people on board at that time good morning, everyone, i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer here in "america's newsroom". martha: i'm march contramaccallum, the crash on this -- the investigation on this crash is on this hour. no survivors have been found as of yet. gregg: the plane was headed to ethena's capitol and family awaits word on relatives and what caused that plane to crash. greg, are there any signs of survivors? >> >> reporter: nothing yet, gregg and martha, but you noted a frantic search for survivors, the fear is all on board that airplane died off the crash of beirut, near lebanon. i'm told the u.s.s. ramage, an american destroyer that happened to the in port in beirut is involved in the search, as well as a t-13 maritime search and rescue aircraft, also of american denomination.
and finally address the problems that america's families have had for years. we can't afford another so-called economic expansion like the one from the last decade. what some called the lost decade, where jobs grew more slowly than during any prior expansion, where the income of the average american household declined while the cost of health care and tuition reached record highs. where prosperity was built on the housing bubble and financial speculation. from the day i took office, i have been told that addressing our larger challenges is too ambitious. such an effort would be too contentious. i have been told that our political system is to gridlocked, that we should just put things on hold for a while. for those who make these claims i have one simple question. how long should we wait? how long should america put its future on hold? [applause] you see, washington has been telling us to wait for decades, even as the problems have grown worse. meanwhile, china is not waiting to revamp its economy. germany is not waiting. and yet is not waiting. these nations are not standing still. the
someone very dear to massachusetts, and to america. senator ted kennedy was a tireless and big-hearted public servant, and for most of my lifetime was a force like no other in this state. [applause] his name will always command the affection and respect by the people a massachusetts and i said to be filled the same about her. there's no replacing a man like that, but tonight i honor his memory, and i pledge my very best to be a worthy successor. i said at the very beginning, when i sat down at the dinner table with my family, that win or lose we would run a race which would make us all proud. i kept my word and we ran a clean, issues oriented, upbeat campaign - and i wouldn't trade that for anything. when i first started running, i asked for a lot of help, because i knew it was going to be me against the machine. i was wrong, it was all of us against the machine. tonight we have shown everybody now and that you of the machine. i'm glad my mom and dad, brothers, sisters, and so many family members are here tonight. once again, before i go any further, i want to introduce somebod
but it's not going anywhere. >> create more jobs. >> create more jobs. >> most of america who was hurt by this has not recovered. >> got like 1,000 people applying for one job. and $10 an hour. how can you really even live on $10 an hour. >> a lot of companies i've applied to are hiring now where they weren't last year. >> everybody needs to work because without work you got crime and everything gets worse. >> america wants a good story. the good story is we had this terrible thing happen to us and we bounced back. the reality is it will take us longer to bounce back than a year. >> no, we're not out of the woods. >> we're in deep crap. >> hopefully the worst days are behind us. >> reporter: that's a lot of people with a lot of views. everyone counts. i'm joe carter and i'll see you on the street. >> views from the street just one more way for you to voice your opinion on hln and you can catch it here every day. >>> america's children are dealing with some pretty adult problems and they may begin at the dinner table. we'll bring you some eye opening news about a grown up health risk yo
in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a imin of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate. senator jim webb, made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who were principally responsible for certifying election after earlier saying take up to two weeks, indicated it could be as soon today. i don't believe the kind of thing we've seen on full diswith the corn husbander kick back, the louis purchase, the gator aide, drafting the bill behind closed doors, i think majority has got the message and no more gamesmanship here. no more lack of transparency. let's honor the wishes of the people of massachusetts and move forward with policy. with our policy debates. with that, let me call on our, outstanding chairman of the national republican senatorial committee who played

business in america, which we will do. there's an argument there, that's true. i don't think proprietary trading caused the crisis, but there are problems with it. we have not just had the problems of the crisis. we've had problems of individual investors and others not being treated fairly. paul volcker, who is certainly no enemy of wall street, has been the one most concerned about the proprietary trading. and we're talking about saying, if you have a deposit insurance guarantee with the federal government, you shouldn't be using that to help do this proprietary trading. the other thing we say is this, i don't want the banks making their money from this kind of trading and investments. i want them to make their money by loans. to some extent, this is aimed at getting the banks more into the lending business, which frankly they've moved away from too far. >> the other critique of this, i've heard, is that it basically targets mainstream banks, where most americans have an account with bank of america, a citibank, jpmorgan chase, wells fargo. it does not get after the issue of the too bi

and the democratic party. and i think it is a really good thing that america is waking up, that they are seeing through this because of the tyrannical dictatorships, the way that nancy pelosi and harry reid are trying to push through this against the will of the american people. but if mr. brown loses the election, jamming down health care down the throats of the american people is nothing compared to what they are going to do. they will find some crisis, some way that they will continue to keep the power and before we know it we will have a hammer and sickle for a flag over the white house. host: on the republican line, joining us from san francisco. caller: good morning. it is a wonderful morning when we can have massachusetts, a historical state, help us, the american people to fight back what we see here. we have been so betrayed, we feel. the nation is in a mess. we all know what happened when we went into this financial crisis. we know that president clinton put out a lot -- that he change what existed in the banking system. and there he put in larry summers to deregulate everything. that

bernanke and the chairman of the federal reserve, i think we'd be looking at a very different america today. now he was not my choice to become the chairman of the federal reserve. the previous administration nominated ben bernanke. i voted for him. and then when i became chairman of the banking committee in january of 2007, for the first time, i went through a very frustrating year on that committee. on february 7 of 2007, i had my first hearings on the issue of the mortgage crisis in the country. and we had 12 such hearings on that committee over the remaining months. almost one every month on this issue. yet, i could not get the chairman of the federal reserve to pay as much attention as i thought he should have. beginning in the latter part of 2007, and going forward, his leadership in my view was absolutely critical to avoiding the kind of problems this country faced. so, mr. president, i'll speak for a few more minutes later in this tee baivment but i think we would make a great error, indeed, if we were to reject this nomination. we'd not terminate this filibuster, vote up and down o

is something we just have to live with? why don't we make anything in america anymore? and why is it so hard to pass a health-care bill that guarantees americans held the lives instead of guaranteeing insurance companies healthy product -- profits? as i travel from city to city, i heard a sense of resignation from middle-class americans. people laid off for the first time in their lives asking, what did i do wrong? i came away shaken by the sense that the very things that make america great are now in danger. what makes us unique among nations is that in america, working people are the middle class. we built our middle-class in the 20th-century through hard work, through struggle, and visionary political leadership. but a generation of destruction economic policies has eroded that progress and now threatens our very identity as a nation. today on every coast and in between, working women and working man are joining the middle class and to protect and rebuilding it. we pray for political leadership ready to fight for the kind of america we want to lead to our children. and again, the forces o
